Please Join us this Sunday to celebrate St. Bartholomew’s Anniversary.
Healing Day National Bell Ringing
Sunday, August 25, 2019 | 2:45 PM
Commemoration of the 400th Anniversary of the Arrival of Enslaved Africans to America.
Bells will begin tolling at 3:00.
We will join other churches and organizations across the country and toll our bells for FOUR minutes — one for each century — to honor the enslaved Africans who landed in 1619 at Port Comfort in Hampton, Virginia. The site is now part of Fort Monroe National Monument, which is leading the national bellringing ceremony.
We will gather outside near the bell tower for a short liturgy that concludes with an invitation to walk the labyrinth. We will livestream the commemoration on Facebook.
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has encouraged Episcopal churches across the country to take part. More on that here: Click Here

We have four Christmas worship services. (Click below to learn more.) We gather every week to be nourished and renewed for our daily living through the Holy Eucharist. Our Sundays are joyful and rich with Worship, Fellowship and Learning.
Our priests come from different backgrounds and bring unique gifts to our Parish. Become acquainted with them as they share a bit about their journey to St. Bart’s.
Commemorating 400 years of African American History and Culture: An invitation to participate in Healing Day National Bell Ringing | Episcopal Church
St. Bartholomew’s Church is a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. We open our doors to all who seek God or a deeper knowledge of God. We are pleased you have chosen to visit us. We come here to celebrate what we believe about life and to be nourished and renewed for our daily living: in the work place, at school, with family and friends, and in times of solitude or loneliness. Worship is the center of our community’s life together, and the Eucharist is the center of our worship.
Outside of worship, we want to connect with one another on a spiritual and playful level, as well. We encourage participation in small-groups like education classes or book groups to get to know each other better. Our parish-wide activities provide opportunity for fun and fellowship, too. We have programs for children, youth, young adults, adults and seniors, all of which provide a perfect place to ‘jump-in’. We are inclusive, welcoming and always pleased to see new faces.
